Some Tasks Are Long in the Doing...

"There is something infinitely better than doing a great thing for God, and the infinitely better thing is to be where God wants us to be, to do what God wants us to do, and to have no will apart from His." - G. Campbell Morgan



Homeschooling.

Whew! Homeschooling is a long, long road, isn't it?

It is always tempting to consider giving up when a task is so long in the doing. But what benefit ever comes from quitting? What great gain can there be from taking a break? or from stopping altogether?

A Little Romans 8:6 For Your Day

Romans 8:6b - ...but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 

A mind controlled by the world - by the flesh - by the enemy of God is a mind filled with chaos and unease. It's sort of like your mental state is comparable to a bag full of cats. Not a pleasant way to go through daily life, is it? But most of us have dealt with a messed-up mindset at one point or another.

In contrast, the mark of the Spirit's control of your mind is life and peace.

Having God's peace means having a sense of inner calm, regardless of circumstances, coupled with the ability to hear from the Lord and think clearly. It is the opposite of a panicked mind filled with jumbled thoughts and stressful ponderings.

We can pray to have a peaceful mind, knowing that this is God's will for us. (He has no desire to see any of His children living with an out-of-control mind.)

There is also the promise of life when the Holy Spirit controls one's mind. Life is the opposite of death. Deadly tho…
